The Stoma Support Brace of “Orthoteh” strengthens the abdominal wall directly around the stoma. It applies pressure on the adhesive layer of the colostomy bag and reduces the risk of herniation. The pressure is adjusted thanks to the Velcro strip. The elastic band is made of a “breathing” hypoallergenic fabric. It doesn’t contain latex and is very durable when used according to the instructions.
To put on
1. Firstly, fix the colostomy bag in place.
2. Slip the colostomy bag through the opening of the brace.
3. Stretch the ends of the brace and fix it in place.
